Thermed Cherry Vase

This 9 inch tall vase was turned from a block of cherry using a technique known as therming, also called drum turning. If you notice, all of the surfaces are curved. The middle section was textured with a small rotary tool and stained black. Therming allows multiple shapes to be turned simultaneously using a multi-axis drum with the turning blanks mounted off-center on axes parallel to the main axis. The technique of therming dates back to the 1700s and was developed by furniture makers as a means of producing multiple copies of spindles, bannisters and legs on the lathe. It has been used extensively in modern times by well known turning artists including Art Liestman and Stoney Lamar to create unique sculptures in wood. Finish on the vase is Watco oil buffed on the Beall system.
